As we advance our ESG integration process we are also beginning to explore opportunities to design targeted ESG portfolios in 2022, expanding on our carbon-reduced mandate. Targeted portfolios would have a specific ESG focus, built around factors that are quantifiable and impactful. These future solutions may include issuers who we believe are leaders in addressing certain ESG factors or may focus on companies exhibiting improvement in their ESG risk profiles. We continue to manage our existing Targeted Portfolio, the RP Broad Corporate Bond (BBB, Carbon Reduced) strategy. This strategy has a dual mandate of producing 100 bps per annum of excess return above that of the index while maintaining a weighted average carbon intensity lower than that of the index*.
